    I just ordered my new tires(38.5x14.5x15 TSL SX) and have an incredible amount of work to do before the Dixie run. Right now the 205 is out of my doubler setup, my D60 and 14FF are laying in the floor, my drive shafts have to be lengthened and shortened, i need to build my cage, and many other various odds and ends. Is everyone else ready, and who is going?

    Basically I'm ready now. I'm not making too many changes from what I got now. Maybe I'll bend up some tube doors or something before then, but what I got now is what I'm bringing down there. Oh, I need some "Air". Maybe something like PowerTank, but Homebrew version....

    Forgot to say, good luck with your mods. Hope you have it ready by then /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    I still haven't received my registration stuff. Truck is pretty close to being ready. Just need to install my Nurf extensions and get some CTM or Superior U-Joints for the Warn shafts laying on my work bench and throw them in. Need to rebuild the rear brakes but that's easy afternoon. I need to get down to Deps and bend those tubes /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
    So what we going to run? 9 again? My truck is big enough for it now but still no winch /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    I just bought my stuff for the CO2 setup. Works great! I will have it with me if anyone needs it.

    Thanks! I need all the luck I can get! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    I am up for anything! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif I have never run Tellico, but I have seen pictures and it looks like fun.

    I finally got a winch and a bumper, I just need to get it all mounted now!

    It's held at Tellico, which is wayyyy SouthWest of NC.
    Probably a few hours from yah.
    13 + hours from me /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    Well, if I can't get any air by then (very poor dude), I'll pitch in some bucks to you Mr. Chevy to borrow some air /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Grim, just squeeze in between us /forums/images/icons/smile.gif I'll give you a pull if need be...

    Boss, if you need it and I have it, you are welcome to it! I don't expect any payment! I have had enough people help me when I couldn't afford to pay them that I enjoy returning the favor. Besides, filling my 20# tank only costs $12 and it lasts a LONG time. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Keith, it sounds like we're lagging behind. Sounds like most are ready to go. I got my 60 bolted up and the crossover in tonight. I have a TPI setup, but I'm not crazy enough to believe I will have time to get it in before Dixie. 14FF will be going in tomorrow evening. Saturday I hope to finish putting the doubler back together and fab the front crossmember.

    Hey, blazerboy I'm right down the road, over in Dallas. I'll be in a different truck than last year, but the body is about the only change. All I need is drive shafts &amp; air.
